Why does Ice Lake have such low base frequency?

I was reviewing a newly launched Ice Lake processor with an equivalent 14nm Whiskey Lake chip launched a year ago and one thing that struck me was that ICL has a very low processor base frequency for some reason.

Both processors are in the same product category, have the same number of cores, same TDP, and same price:

https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/196588/intel-core-i3-1005g1-processor-4m-cache-up-to-3-40-ghz.html

Yes the ICL processor max frequency is 3.4 GHz whereas the 14nm chip tops out half a GHz more at 3.9 GHz. But the ICL chip base frequency is only 1.2 GHz, whereas the 14nm equivalent base starts at 2.1 GHz, almost a GHz higher. What could be the reason for this?
